    1995 McCarty Goldtop Info

    I am trying to get info on a 1995 McCarty Goldtop that I have. It has some interesting remarks under the PUPs. Please take a look and tell me what you all think. I was a former BAM member and have a similar thread over there at vintage rocker.

    $1195 is a great price for a '95 McGoldie. Cool guitar.

    1195 is not a selling price but my mistake trying to put 1995 as a year as I already have the guitar...just looking for info. Cannot edit title.

    If Mike hasn't already paid, I will take this guitar for that price! I might even consider going to $1200...

    Again, Sorry for the confusion but I own this guitar...for about 2 years now. Just trying to get some info. Moderators please change title to read 1995 not 1195...this is not a FS thread.

    I'm probably stating the obvious here (if so, my apologies), but have you sent these pics and your inquiry to the factory? They could probably help out in a hurry.

    No issues...just did not want to get kicked off of a forum with 1 posting.

    I called about 6 months ago. I left a message and never got a call back. Tried to call again, stated they were not the right person for the question...transferred to same number that I was waiting for a call from.

    That appears to be an "Artist Stock" guitar. Congrats!

    Too bad the PRS database from those years is dead - would be fun to know which artist it was made for.

    You're going to have to work MUCH harder than that to get kicked off this forum.

    On BAM someone mentioned Alex Lifeson from Rush was looking for a McCarty Goldtop from this time frame.....I wish....who knows now that the dbase is gone.

    I am thinking of sending it to the PTC to get a once over and tune up....maybe someone might remember it there???

    Those markings mean it has horrible undisclosed defects and is basically worthless. You should send it to me immediately for disposal.
